Apama 10.3 | Apama Documentation | Developing Apama Applications | Protecting Personal Data in Apama Applications | Introduction
Legislation in various parts of the world – such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union (EU) - specifies that personal data cannot be collected and processed without a person’s consent or other legitimate basis, and that organizations are responsible for protecting personal data that is entrusted to them. The concept of "personal data" typically covers details that can be used to identify a person, such as the person's name, email address or IP address.
Note: In the different countries of the EU, the GDPR may be known under another, language-specific name. For example, it known as the Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DSGVO) in Germany and as Règlement Général à la Protection des Données (RGPD) in France.
Apama is a general-purpose event processing platform on which customers build their own applications. Most of the data handled by Apama is arbitrary customer-defined data whose meaning is defined by the customer who developed the application. Some of that customer-defined data may qualify as "personal data", so if you are developing applications on the Apama platform, you should be careful to ensure compliance with laws related to that data.
See the following topics for some suggestions to help with identifying how personal data can be protected when building applications on the Apama platform.
